8:50 am
would say is that apple would rather cannibalize its own sales than have someone else do it for them. they're being pressed, i think, to do this and that there are a bunk of new lower cost tablets out there and they had to come out with something like an ipad mini or they would have lost sales. they're in a tough position in the sense that they steal from theirop sales and make less profits or have someone else steal their sales and make no profits. >> right. >> the last big innovation from apple was the ipad and have been known for their crattist and innovation. we're not seeing big new launches from him. >> that isp -- from them. >> i think it's unfair to expect apple to come out with a wonder product every few years. >> right. how many times can you come out with them and convince people you need? >> right. the products have been fairly innovative.
